No time to complain...

This post really has very little to do with teaching, but then again it does. I am so thankful for my health. I complain a lot (mostly in my head) that I am still not "myself", but thank the Lord that each and every day I gain more and more strength. This week was hard - the effects of chemo still follow me around. I hate not being able to get in the floor with my kiddos and not having the energy to do my "normal". Just about the time that I was going into my one of my "pity parties" a local paramedic came into my classroom and brought me a pink shirt that the firemen are wearing this month. He is such a blessing to me for so many reasons, but as you can imagine I cried like a baby right then and there. I have been so blessed with so many friends and family that have lifted me up in so many ways that I continually tell myself TO STOP COMPLAINING! It's amazing that something as bad as stage IIIA breast cancer can be such a blessing. Thank you Lord for showing me that You do work all things together for good.

So many acts of kindness have definitely motivated me to "press on". So, I have posted more pictures and comments of some of my favorite activities from this week under "Math Stations". This little blog is also a motivator. Thanks, Julie H. for encouraging me to go for it!

  1. Oh, Suzan, it is YOU that is such a blessing to all who know you. Your perseverance and faith through this past year has been such a strong message from the Lord to all of us. HE truly does live through you. I so admire that you are back in the saddle so soon-this job takes so much out of you normally, I can only imagine the energy you have to summon when you are already fighting so hard. I love you and have been blessed to have you in my life for all these years. Your students are truly blessed also!

    You keep on and I'll be right behind you!
